Side by side comparison video of Forza Motorsport (Xbox) and Forza Motorsport 2 (Xbox 360).
Not sure why they have done this! What are they trying to get accross?
Well...usually wen someone is comparing an old iteration of a game wid an upcoming sequel its usually to show how the game has progressed from the previous. Or it could b an attempt to start a flame war. Either one.
just shows how good forza 1 still holds up.
Theres the details like the reflection of the sun and trees off the cars and the glossiness of them in forza 2.
Wow, Forza 1 looks great! Cant wait for Forza 2.
It really makes me hope that the final version of Forza 2 will look better than the demo. I know I'll love the game, but the graphics don't impress me. The graphical difference between Forza 1 and 2 should be bigger than this.
...F2 just looks like a slightly polished HD version of F1. I have said it before and I'll say it again, the reflections in F2 suck! Not only do they feature pop up but cars are not reflected either.
Oh yes, on my HD screen the hood of the car in F2 looks jaggy...disappointing.
To people complaining this is unnecessary and makes flame wars, I disagree. Comparing F2 to GT creates flames. Whos arguing with a Forza 1 to Forza 2 comparison? Are XB1 fans ganging up on X360 fans? Um, dont think so. So whats the problem? Its just to see how the series has progressed.
One thing I've got to say about the demo. Everyones complaining about the graphics. They dont bother me, they're ok, not great. I just pray you can change the control method. I really hate this insistance that Xbox racers have for Accelerate and brake being on the triggers. I hate this method. Most games you can change it but some you cant. (In fairness its usually the lighter arcade type racers you cant change it.) On the demo the gear changes are on X and B. Very unintuitive for me. I like the gears on the triggers and accelerate and brake on the right analouge stick like an RC car or failing that on A and X.
I'm gonna have to wait and see on this one. I know it sounds petty, but unnatural controls on a game like this could be a gamebreaker for me. I'm pretty sure they will have options in the full game so it should be ok.
Forza 2 is damn good game based on the demo. At least I am happy. I was hoping there would be better AA though, but hey the gameplay is perfect and that is the main reason I will buy it.
Man the power of the Xenon gpu is AMAZING!!!!
Ps3 owners beware!!!!!
omg that crush gran turismo!!!!! yeah pointless video ..looks the same forza 2 is just more shiny..nothin different..
i think you mean the xenos gpu...
You have no idea what your talking about.
Forza 2 should have same level damage modeling as in new Flatout ;)
(joke of course.. different games, both must have)
Wow PS3's GTHD beats Forza2 hands down but then again its just a demo and who knows when GT5 will be released.
and rocked hard ... to steal a thought from Grown Folks Talk:
if you have been a playstation only fan during your gaming life, PS3 graphics amaze you because you had the lowest common denominator. the jump from PS2 to PS3 stands out more because the xbox already looked better. the jump from xbox to 360 isn't as great because xbox didn't have as far to go. xbox games looked better than PS2 from the start because it was better graphics hardware.
Thats spot on.
forza 2 cars look like plastic
No sense in arguing on who's the winner in the ( graphic* - only* ) war. It's definitely GranTurismo... Even if this is only a demo version - the finished game would certainly look a little more better than this. But then it will take the honours for the ( physics* - simulation/damage mode*, plus heaps of other features - modding/personalizing* ).
fanboys, shut the hell up about gt this is about forza customization realistic handling, not gt so quit flaming
Well, i just downloaded the demo yesterday and im not too impressed. The car damage wasnt what i was expecting and i tested it thuroughly by ramming into other cars head on for about 15-20 mins, but then agen it is a demo. Guess i'll have to wait until the end of the month to find out.
If you open up telemetry, you can go to damage and see that it wasn't implemented yet. It's like being able to pick the color of the car but not being able customize it, it's just not really in the demo. There are a lot of things left out of the demo but I must be honest, I thought the demo left a lot to be desired and I don't think much of it will be put into the full version of the game.
always got something stupid to say, i will bet this game will out sell and out rank any ps3 game out to date let alone racing games.But anyway for ppl "with 360s" will be enjoying an amazing racing sim nuff said.
I own Forza 1 - been playing it a lot recently since its BC on my 360 and I was getting psyched for Forza 2, but I have to say, although it plays great, I'm pretty disappointed with how it looks. Yes it looks better, but for me, it doesn't warrant another purchase for 60 bones.
I played a GTHD kiosk at Toys R Us last weekend, and the graphics were stunning - the background looked like a photo - it looked real. Forza 2 lacks something. Maybe its because of the damage modeling.
Anyway, I'm gonna wait and get this when it inevitably becomes a Platinum hit, and I'll get GT whenever it comes out, but I need to get a PS3 first.
why do ppl have such small brains i dont get why you would think that this forza 2 demo should define a judgment it bairly had any physics put in also the damage system was left out and alot of physics,customization and graphics werent even put on the demo so just wait till the damn game comes out because your just judging a book by its covers..
There's no need to insult people becuase they're giving opinions you dont like. That the point of a demo, to let us know what the game it going to be like. Those expecting a huge improvement on this demo might be in for a rude shock. The games gone Gold. Chances are the demo is at least 95% complete (not amount of content of course but overall quality.)You're claiming all these things lik Physics and graphic aren't in the demo like it will be alot better in game, but I think the improvements will be minimum, just like I dont think Ninja Gaiden will be any better than the demo. Is that such a bad thing? I like the demo.
so whats with the paint being sandblasted when you crash? Gameplay looks good.. good framrate, smooth gameplay and good sound. But that crashing simulation is something I thought would be much better, considering all the hype it gets. Maybe because its on arcade mode.
why this video here is much better than the demo:
From that video, you can tell that FM2 looks better than FM1, FM1 still looks pretty good for a last gen game.
That the crowd moves independently of each other. They have their own movements as you drive by. You need to look at it while someone else plays to see the details. Man it is gorgeous.
